A visit from Ted’s Dog

olestray It’s cold this weekend. Miserably cold. I had a lot of yard work to do and not nearly enough time to get it done. I had already cleaned the leaves and pine straw out of the pool, put the giant candy canes on the cedar tree out front, and walked over to my sister’s weekend retreat on the big lake and borrowed an extra trash can. I am in the process of gathering up trash from all of the

Watching Penny

perky101 After eight years in our new house we decided that since I had made some very good investments and had enough time in to take an early retirement I would do just that and do a bit of remodelling to the attic for storage.

The Alley

Trystan69 It was summer, in that awkward time between school and college. The time you feel on the brink of new beginnings, but frightened of stepping out on your own. However, for the time being, I was still at home with my parents. Of course, I had certain new found freedoms, but still forced to live within some of the rules. One of those was cleaning up after dinner and taking out the trash. Not a daunting task, as living

Dog sitting Hawk

Scarolina Uncle Rob and Aunt Missy are staring at me, their arms crossed, eyes wide, and mouths agape. Oh crap, I’m screwed, I think as I take in the glare of their eyes. “Welcome home,” I said, trying to force out a chuckle. ***** Earlier That Day.

The Dog Walker

Author Unknown As a dog walker, I cared for up to ten dogs a day for different owners.
